The Star Of Chipboard Screws


Chipboard screws are specifically designed for screwing into engineered wood– self-tapping with a thin core diameter and coarse threads. We supply the Rapierstar StarTurn™ screw – the best multi-purpose chipboard screw – which offers up to 50% quicker drive in time with exceptional holding power.

The StarTurn brand was developed in response to the demands of the timber construction industry, where a faster, more reliable and safer fastening into both timber and engineered wood materials was required. Starting is virtually instant, as the thread begins at the very tip of the screw and cuts a receiving thread into the wood, with the patented Starform cutting portion of the thread reducing drive-torque during screw insertion.
